Villa Giuglia - Sicily

Setting off to Sicily for a wedding, I looked at all the hotels nearby and not too far away from the coast for a spot of relaxation. Quick to come up on my google search was Villa Giuglia - nearest to the town of Noto near the south-east. Its rustic beauty of the eighteenth century old villa gives it an appealing charm that together with the crystal clear blue swimming pool on their website convinced me that it was the place to pick for my sojourn.

We arrived rather late in the day - well actually in the evening at 10 something - but that didn't seem to phase the staff at all who were happy to help us with our bags to our rooms. Despite the late arrival, we still managed to enjoy the evening outside having a couple of drinks on the balcony.

The next day we manged to see the full extent of the 'residence' as it is or was known Italian, with its baroque style and added extras like the old amphitheatre which nestles near the swimming pool in the luscious green grass which the gardener spends ages watering. The pool is surrounded by almond trees - one of the local specialities that they produce into things like almond milk and slush puppies called granita.    

The rooms are really comfortable, done up in sweet Italian style, with air conditioning, TVs with the suites having more space and more (beautiful) furniture, not that you need to spend too much time in them with all that stunning sun and the sparkling pool.
During the hot summer months, breakfast, and all meals for that matter can be taken on the terrace of the restaurant which is decorated with aged barrels. For breakfast there is a buffet and then for lunch - there is a simple selection of meats, salads and pastas with a three course set menu at 25 euros a head for dinner, serving exquisite dishes - in this instance, you can trust a skinny chef! We had delights such as crunchy seafood salad and squid stuffed with rice doused in tomato sauce made from the sunkissed tomatoes in nearby pachino.   

The best thing about the place, apart from the architecture, is the friendly staff who are only too happy to help you book taxis, advise on anything that you need. Possibly the only downside for us were all the Germans who came in families and were a little noisy at times...
